Let’s fight ghost gear together

A global problem calls for global solutions.

With at least 136,000 marine animals entangled and killed every year, we need to act now.

We're working with some of the biggest seafood companies in the world, such as Thai Union, to combat ghost gear, and our work through our Global Ghost Gear Initiative is making huge strides. So far, we’ve positively impacted the lives of more than 1,000,000 marine animals.

But there’s a long way to go.

Education and collaboration are the strongest weapons we have for combatting ghost gear. With just three simple actions, you can make a huge difference.
